Obviously club could not have 50 or more members, since $12*50=$600>$599. What about 49? If 48 members contributes $12 ($12*48=$576) and 1 member contributed the remaining $23, then the club would have is 48+1=49.

Answer: C.

OR: 12x\leq{$599} --> x\leq{49\frac{11}{12}} --> x=49 (since x must be an integer).

Answer: C.
